South African singer Letta Mbulu possesses one of the most beautiful voices the world has ever known. Her immaculate voice emits a sweetness that radiates from deep within, brimming with a joy of life and inspiring a spirit of hope and happiness.

The gleaming guitars recall disco’s finest hours while the thump of the beats anticipate 80s British soul.
